"We have to deal with Corbyn-19."

No we don't.. that's made up inside your head..
there's no such thing in the real world as Corbyn-19...

My wife can help with this..
A regular part of her working life has been devoted to educating infants
how to distinguish between their imagination and reality..

We now have similar issues with my old mum...
For instance:
"No mum, the drawer in your freezer is not a bin for used incontinence pads.."

She's a constant source of entertainment.

But not to be relied on if we were panic buying hoarders,
and needed to make use of her freezer for our over stock...

This is about grocery shopping and the need for unselfishness and restraint due to the difficulty of balancing 'supply and demand'.
I agree that it shouldn't become a political boxing ring, which is both tedious and unpleasant.
On a more relevant note, I remember as a young girl the ubiquitous brown Ration Books just after WW2. One could only buy items for which one had the necessary sections of the book, which the shopkeeper tore out each time. I wonder if this system would work nowadays to stop selfish panicky people filling several trolleys at the crack of dawn with half the supermarket?
I expect nowadays it could all be done electronically in some way. But it shouldn't be up to the poor checkout staff to police proceedings.

My local paper had pictures of empty shelves in the bread aisle, paper products aisle and pasta shelves in the town's Tesco Extra store. I was there that day and, yes, I saw those empty shelves. What the paper didn't show was the well stocked fresh produce area. There was a wide choice of fruit and vegetables, and plenty of it. The press have a duty not to stoke the fires of panic buying.

Eyup, Dave, a homebrew shop in Bude? Not a chance! There MIGHT be one in Barnstaple (one hour), or Exeter (75 minutes), or Plymouth ((ditto), or Truro (ditto)... Haven't checked. But I've already scoured Barnstaple and Truro shops for bakers' yeast...not a chance! The health shop in Bude can't get any. I still have half a pot of old stuff that might still work, though I haven't used any for a month or three. I've been getting lazy and buying Sainsbury's sourdough pavé, which is rather good...

Apropos of so-called panic buying, I think it's transforming from "I must stock up in case it runs out" to "I must stock up because I suddenly might not be allowed out." The latter is a bit more understandable.

Just went to Asda to try and find some Scotch bonnet chillies. Husband very pleased to get a couple of small packets of them. I got spinach too. We were glad to see a rule being enforced - only three of any item. Many of the shelves were empty nonetheless, and the workers looked terribly tired and stressed.
I'm not keen on Asda anyway, but it's very multi-cultural with people of all races and types, which I do like. We scuttled out of there, after visiting the Western Union booth. The chap couldn't do a money transfer to Ivory Coast, as their whole system is down.
No need to buy anything else for quite a while, and the village shop will be perfectly adequate.

I grew up in a post war build council house [fit for heroes].
Sturdy construction, and big front and back gardens..

Throughout my childhood my dad grew all our vegetables..

Factory work all day, gardening for relaxation on the evenings and weekends..
His shed was his sanctuary..
Quite a stable lifestyle back then..

Now in a long term crisis, I'd have to break up concrete in our tiny town centre back yard,
and then haven't a clue how to do gardening.
Because I was more interested in rock music and girls,
than helping my dad out and learning from him in his garden..

But at least I know veg grows in the ground,
which is probably more than a lot of modern kids now understand...

I'm really sorry, moderator, but it's utterly outrageous that you allowed this to stand whilst deleting my civil response to it:

"Tyhere are only 2 culprits trying to score political points. Why not address Jim and shaw directly?"

Every one of my posts in this thread has been on-topic and non-political, and Jim hasn't even posted to this thread at all. It's a downright lie to state that the two of us are "trying to score political points." I could also have pointed to another one of his that you've kept in place, the one containing a nasty slur against the Labour leader calling him "Corbyn-19." I really don't understand what you think you're doing, and would ask that you review and rectify your actions in this thread. Thank you.

Bring back ration cards I say. It's been a few years since I last saw mine. Haven't needed it since about 1954. It would be an easy thing to accomplish as it could all be computerised and linked to Nat Ins. No, passport, car reg, marital status and census data, and any gaps in the knowledge of government as to who and what you are could easily be filled in by google and probably your internet linked TV and computer.
If you keep schtum Alexa could easily be persuaded to betray you.

pfr, you can grow veges and herbs in pots.

I'm not an expert. Our veges sink or swim with very little help from us.

At present we have some rectangular self watering pots with lots of oregano and in our raised vege beds we have an overrun of mint - not a bad thing. It's always touch and go with my attempts on growing thyme.

We recently bought some Japanese eggplant seedlings and they have already yielded about four long thin eggplants the size of large zucchinis.

A pumpkin vine has escaped from the compost bin and so far we have two large ones sitting in the sun waiting to ripen and two medium ones still on the vine. They can take a long time to ripen but when ripe the pumpkin can be baked or steamed and then frozen for future use. I wouldn't recommend pumpkin vines because they take up too much space but there might be smaller plant varieties which could be grown in a big pot. Zucchinis can be good but I've had no luck recently partly because of the drought, and partly because I'm a forgetful gardener.

Onions take too long to mature, but spring onions etc are quicker.

Hubby discovered a trick for growing basil. Buy one of those pots of basil in the supermarket and chop the tops off, strip all but the topmost leaves and put the cuttings in water, making sure that there is a leaf node on each stem under water. After a while some rootlets form and then you can plant them into pots to grow more basil. Repeat ad infinitum.

I took the seeds out of a chili and planted them a couple of weeks ago and now there are lots of seedlings. I'll plant them in a bigger pot, socially distanced of course, to give them room to grow.

I'm thinking about getting some cos lettuce seedlings. We've had problems before with tomatoes and capsicums because something eats them but I have a little section on the front verandah with pots of this and that including the chili seedlings so I'll probably try some there. There is mesh on the verandah to stop the cats taking a flying leap but it should also prevent those annoying Indian mynah pest-birds from getting at the chilies, capsicums and tomatoes.

We have a blueberry bush but it doesn't yield much. A raspberry plant has popped up thanks to the pest-birds and their poop, I'm guessing. The last one yielded enough to make it fun so we'll see how this one goes. It's in a big pot. Strawberries are good too.

Also, I've probably said this on Mudcat before, possibly in the recipe thread, but do you know you can use the bean water from a can of chickpeas or butter beans or white beans etc as a substitute for egg white? It's known as aquafaba i.e. bean water, if you want to look up recipes.

I made some very yummy meringues with them, took them to a family lunch and no one could tell the difference. The possibilities are amazing.

I had a bad year on me veg plot last year. I had massive and often surprising issues with birds, rabbits and deer. I got no crops of beans or spuds or greens. The tomatoes were OK but by the time they were coming in I'd sort of lost heart. My raspberries succumbed big time to grey mould too, in contrast to the year before, when I got stones of the things. So this year I'm going go be a damn sight more vigilant. I have Foremost and Nicola spuds well sprouted and they're going in next week. I avoid mains because I nearly always get blight, and they cop it far worse than earlies and second-earlies. I'm sowing Sungold and San Marzano tomatoes, along with broad beans, French beans and runner beans. I always get a good crop of wild rocket and chives without sowing. The parsnips will go in next week too. The all-female cucumbers can wait until May. Next month I'll sow my summer and early purple broccoli. And parsley, lots of that. I've probably forgotten something...

In Ontario, supermarkets are installing plexiglass screens to separate cashiers from customers. Credit and debit cards only, and just the tap-and-go kind.

I wonder how the oldest-school Mennonites will manage the new order; the horse-and-carriage folks are strictly cash.

Grocery clerks and shelf stockers are in the public consciousness and being lauded as essential workers, but the delivery drivers who bring things from stores, the warehouse workers and the shipping companies are in a different situation; those companies often don't offer paid sick leave. I'm thinking that it might be better to wait till a quiet time of day and try to find what I need instead of setting the delivery process in motion for those overworked warehouse and delivery employees. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/21/business/coronavirus-ups-fedex-xpo-workers.html

We visited a huge Morrisons and an enormous Tesco this morning in Norwich. Both almost deserted, it was very weird. Skeleton staff of very old ladies and young teenagers, only about five checkouts in action. Spotlessly clean, with people constantly swabbing down all the surfaces.
Like you Steve we managed to get small amounts of vegetables, tomatoes, fruit juice, and packets of grapes, cherries, dates and stoned prunes.
But the atmosphere was so strange.

Here in Germany (Munich) supermarkets don't have
- toilet paper
- rice (at least the cheap varieties, of Uncle Ben's is still a bit available)
- pasta (same here, cheap ones sold out, high price pasta still available in small amounts)
- tomatoes in any conserved form (tomato mark, canned tomatoes, strained(?) tomatoes))
- flour
- yeast (dry powder or in cubes)

All other stuff is available in close to normal quantities.

At the checkouts in some markets acrylic shields are there to protect the cashiers from accidental spittle drops.

People queueing at the checkouts keep about 2m distance from each other. And they avoid entering aisles where already someone else is in.

About the increased toilet paper usage due to home office (since Tuesday): in my case, there is no increased need - I always tried to avoid going to the office toilets for "big business", I usually s(h)it at home ...

I wish good health to everyone!

I've been thinking that the people addicted to fast food are going to be floundering, out of their depth, while the people who prefer wholefoods and home cooking will probably have an advantage.

Just imagine having to go cold turkey on fast foods if you are used to having it once or more per day.

Australia is going into shutdown mode from this afternoon. Not lockdown - yet! But non-essential shops have to shut.

Does Macca's (McDonalds) count as essential or non-essential?
